Frequently Asked Questions

What does OEM stand for?

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, meaning the original company/ manufacturer of your vehicle (i.e.  Mercedes-Benz, Tesla, Rivian, etc.)

Why is visiting an OEM-certified shop important?

OEM certifications have a high standard of requirements set for our shop in order to maintain our certifications. Here at V&J Auto Body, we regularly go through inspections to ensure we are utilizing the latest technology and equipment, exceeding safety standards, and our technicians are trained on the correct repair procedures. 

I don’t see my vehicle’s manufacturer in your certifications, what do I do?

While we try to certify ourselves for every manufacturer, there are some that we are still working on obtaining. Not to worry! Our team of experts can still handle the repair. Throughout our 42 years in business, and with 32,000+ vehicles repaired, we have seen almost every make and model of vehicle come through our Lindenhurst-based Auto Body shop. 

Why does V&J have so many OEM certifications?

As part of this dedication, we prioritize maintaining OEM procedures and standards at our shop.
